The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II is primarily focused on the results of an enormous survey of diet and mortality that T. Colin Campbell conducted in 65 Chinese counties.

Campbell was the son of farmers who ate a largely animal-based diet. When he began studying nutrition, he worked under the assumption that the typical American diet of dairy and meat products was ideal. However, after Campbell participated in a nutrition improvement program in a region in the Philippines where children had a high incidence of liver cancer, he began to have doubts. Campbell read studies that helped him make the connection between protein consumption, the carcinogen aflatoxin, and liver cancer. Plant proteins were significantly less correlated to liver cancer growth after aflatoxin exposure…Read more.

Eureka Books, T. Colin Campbell: The China Study Audio Book Summary

The China Study is a book by author and researcher Colin Compbell, in which he tries to raise awareness of the importance of having a healthier diet. What makes this book different compared to many others who might speak of the same problem is that Campbell scientifically demonstrates how animal proteins and animal product intake diets contribute to elevated cholesterol levels, irregular levels of Blood pressure and diseases.

download-t-colin-campbell-the-china-study-audiobookOne of the tests that were carried out was to feed milk proteins to rats that had been exposed to a carcinogen known as aflatoxin. The cancer barely grew in rats fed low amounts of protein or with medium to high amounts of wheat and soy protein, while feeding them with a greater amount of milk protein, ensured the growth of cancer cells.
Diseases related to the disproportionate intake of animal foods include heart disease, breast cancer, kidney stones, cataracts, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, type 1 and 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis.
Some results that he cites are worth noting, such as the case of patients with type 2 diabetes who with a plant-based diet, no longer needed the use of insulin treatments.
On the other hand, the author makes a distinction between what he calls diseases of opulence that are those that are especially related to western diets that are not found in countries where people consume plants and grains. On the other hand, diseases of poverty related to Eastern countries.
It shows that the difference between diseases of opulence and diseases of poverty are not related to genetics; He explains that if a person from the East moves to the West and adopts his food, he can have the same diseases of opulence that he had never before suffered.
There is a lot of excellent nutritional information very useful, both known and probably new to the reader. It is not a book of diets, it is a book of epidemiological science and nutritional studies.
Write about the lack of nutritional education for medical professionals and the power of the industry
So too, he writes about his own experience from growing up on a farm where he thought that animal protein was the basis for a healthy diet that would make him a healthy person, until he became a really healthy vegetarian man of seventy years.


It is a book with real scientific evidence that seeks to show the world discoveries that have to do with the intake of products of animal origin and which aims to raise awareness about how to carry a diet based on products of plant origin, can save lives.
It is an ideal book for vegan or vegetarian people, but it is also a very useful book for anyone who cares about their well-being and that of their family and can make really informed choices about how they choose to eat.
